Angel Numbers

When it comes to spirituality and the search for messages from the divine, angel numbers have been a long-standing part of numerology. Since ancient times, they have been a sign of divine guidance and comfort.

But what are angel numbers? And how do they work?

What Are Angel Numbers?

Angel numbers are repetitive sequences of numbers - usually 3 or 4 - that appear in unexpected and seemingly random places in your life. Commonly mentioned examples are 333 or 1111.

Angel numbers are meant to be messages, meant to give direction or encouragement.

They are not always easy to decipher, but numerological experts have made a study of the most common meanings for those seeking guidance.

In addition to random messages that need to be deciphered, each person has a personal angel number.

How Do I Find My Angel Number?

The procedure for finding your angel number is simple. Add the digits of your birthday, month and year, and keep adding the digits until you reach a single digit.

Example: November 19, 2019 = 1+1+1+9+2+0+1+9 = 24 = 2+4 = 6.

That single number is your personal angel number. It may make frequent appearances in your life for this reason.

However, your personal number may not be the only number used to send you messages. Any highly repetitive sequence may be a sign of divine guidance.

What Should I Do if I'm Seeing Angel Numbers?

Be receptive to the information you're receiving. Sometimes it's advice to support an upcoming decision.

At other times it can be an affirmation that things are coming to fruition. The numbers you see may be a confirmation that the goals you have worked hard to achieve are on the verge of being realized.

If you think you're seeing angel numbers, examine your life for clues as to their meaning.

How Do I Know What Message The Angel Numbers Are Conveying?

Understanding the meaning behind the appearance of angel numbers can be a little difficult. Even if the number is one you've seen before, it may not convey the message it did before.

Likewise, the meaning behind a number for one person may not be the same as the meaning offered to another.

Numerologists have made a study of the meanings behind various angel numbers. Consulting a numerologist or a spiritual advisor can provide a starting point for you to unravel the meaning behind the angel number you're seeing.
